Fraxel® is a wonderful treatment that can remove years from your appearance. It uses safe, non-invasive fractional laser technology to improve or eliminate skin damage such as wrinkles, sun spots, and other signs of aging. Treatment with Fraxel® can correct severe skin damage, resurface damaged skin, or prevent the signs of aging.

Fraxel® treatment is effective for:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines such as brow lines and crow’s feet
  • Surface scars such as those from acne
  • Healing dangerous UV skin damage
  • Minimizing excessive pigmentation such as age spots, also called sun spots
  • AK (actinic keratosis), a pre-cancerous skin condition

This treatment can safely treat men and women of any age and any skin color. Fraxel® is backed by extensive research, is FDA cleared, and has demonstrated its effectiveness through more than a decade of successful treatments.

Before and After: Fraxel Dual

Fraxel® uses microscopic columns of laser energy to treat only a fraction of the tissue at a time, leaving the surrounding area intact. This allows swift healing and triggers the natural healing processes of the body to replace damaged or old cells with new, healthy, fresh, glowing skin.

The number of treatments, and length of the sessions, will be determined by the condition, location, and size of the treatment area, as well as the desired outcome. Results are typically achieved in three to six sessions, with treatment time ranging from 20 minutes to over an hour. We will explain the levels of treatment and the associated downtime, and work with you to devise a treatment plan to meet your needs and your lifestyle.

Depending on the level of treatment, you may experience some swelling or redness after treatment. This will diminish quickly within the day or few days following treatment. The more aggressive Fraxel® re:pair treatment is ablative, and therefore involves some downtime, however, results are seen after just one treatment.

Fraxel® treatment provides both progressive and immediate results. Within a few days of treatment, your skin will show a more even tone, look brighter, and feel softer. The results will continue to improve over the next three to six months and can last for several years, depending on your skin condition and age.
